Age 23, Torn Cervix

This is the cervix of a 23 year old woman gave birth vaginally two years ago.  She typically has a 30 day cycle and has no history of STIs.

Her cervix tore during the birth of her large baby and required sutures postpartum.  You can see the irregular (not doughnut-shaped) shape of her cervix in the photo.   After birth, she also experienced a partially prolapsed uterus which was corrected with a Laparoscopic Sacral Colpohysteropexy procedure.  Her doctors advise a planned cesarean section for future births due to concerns of incompetent cervix and causing further trauma.
